......... .. A


The final championship basketball game was played Thursday between
the winners of the A and the B tournament . . . Collegiate Sorosis and Zone
5 . . . Virginia Donahue starred for Zone 5 with her long high shots which
seemed drawn toward the basket by some invisible force .. . Janet Allington
made so many free shots for Sorosis, one right after the other, that we began
to think she didn't know how to miss them .. . Nedra Evans, guard for Zone
3 was the biggest menace to the Sorosis forwards . . . The way she slung the
ball from one end of the floor to the other with one hand was wonderful
to see . . . Both teams played well but Zone 5 crept steadily ahead until,
at the final whistle the score was 28 to 9, favor of Zone 5 . .
'Here Caome The British' ...
The women's rifle team shot against the men's squad Thursday after-
noon and there really was some good competition . . . A stranger entering
the range in the basement of the W.A.A. building would have had the im-
pression that there was no one in the room, except for the loud shots which
rang out every few seconds, because the shooters and the spectators were in
the dark at one end of the room . . . The only light was on the target at the
other end . . . . Dorothy Williams, Elda Faster, Frances Odell, Brenda
Parkinson and Harriet Kanouse, who have been training under the able
direction of Betty Robertson, manager, came to try their skill against John
Alden, Joseph Althouse, Charles Framburg, Robert Beuhler, Harrison Wil-
liams, Hudson Dunks. Ralph Price, and William Sheldon, who were super-
vised by Captain Wallington . . .
The first procedure of the afternoon was for every contestant to lie on
the mats and pop at the targets for awhile. . . . This, as explained to an
ignorant bystander, was the process of "sighting in" . . . Next three mem-
bers of each team were given targets and ten shots apiece . . . All seemed
to go very well until Betty Robertson's target turned itself on its side . .
It would have been as easy to split a hair at fifty yards as to hit it in that
condition . . . To give her a chance to straighten it out, Captain Wallington
gave the order "Cease firing" . . . "Bang-bang" went two guns immediately
after the order . . . Not much discipline on the rifle range . . . Between
stretches, one of the men made a remakable discovery . .. With the com
ment, "This is the girls' range," he pointed out a suspicious-looking hole in
one of the lamp shades above the shooting mats . . . We don't think their
aim can be that bad . . .
We noticed among the spectators near the end of the tournament Dr.
Bell and Miss Peaseley, who were showing their enthusiastic interest in the
art of sharp-shooting . . . The match ended in favor of the men by four
points . . .. 89 to 93 . .. The men's team boasted the highest individual
scorer in the person of Joseph Althouse, who shot a 99, but the second highest
was attained for the honor of the women by Frances Odell, who scored 97 . .
Crabs And Shrimps . .
A swimming meet was held Wednesday morning between the Crabs
under Mary Redden, captain and the Shrimps under Sally Kenny .. . The
Shrimps won the meet 51 to 42 . . . There were individual ribbons awarded
for each event and at the end the winning team received a yellow seal with a
blue "M" on it and blue streamers . . . The losing team received a similar
seal with red streamers . . .
And for the people who are planning their gym courses for next semester,
there's a big sporting future ahead . . . Besides Interclub Basketball, there
are Fencing tournaments, Ping Pong tournaments, intramural and tele-
graphic swimming meets and last, but not least, intercollegiate rifle meets.
. . . Badminton will carry on with scheduled matches with University High
School and the Ann Arbor Badminton Club . . . and there's to be a single
and a doubles elimination tournament for women . .. Then this is a good
place to remind you of the course in Recreational Leadership that's being
offered for anyone interested in playground or camp counselling .. .
The second indoor season will start out with a fencing meeting on the
first Monday in Barbour Gym called by Dr. May and Fencing Manager
Grace Gray. . . The eight advanced members will welcomenewcomers who
have become interested through taking an acalemic course taught by Miss
Hartwig . . . Next season will start the regular bouts and there's talk of a
demonstration next spring.,
A skiing party is leaving the W.A.A. building at two p.m. on Feb. 15
with Outdoor Manager Mabel Allison in charge . . . and there are rumors
of a winter houseparty later in the season . .
More Basketball Coming . . .
Interclub Basketball will begin Tuesday the 18th and it will be held every
Tuesday and Thursday afterwards . . . Anyone interested in basketball can
come out for it and there are papers posted on the two bulletin boards in
Barbour Gymnasium and the one at the W.A.A. Building for anyone to sign
who would like further information and instruction . .. Janet Allington and
Virginia Nimmo are joint chairmen and Miss Hartwig and Miss Peaseley
will do the coaching . . . And speaking of basketball, there's rumors of a
game to be played by a Michigan women's team chosen by Miss Peaseley
on February 22 against a Battle Creek College team . . .
For ski enthusiasts and others who want exercise and grace there is a
feature posted on the Barbour Gym bulletin board . . . It's called "Look
Before You Leap" and is designed to help you avoid all those kinked and
aching muscles on Monday morning when you have spent the week-end
indulging in the rapidly-growing sport of skiing . . . Not only beginners
but experts as well use these exercises . . . Among the titles are such exciting
ones as "Cutting an Arc," "Jump in Snow Plow," "Left and Right," and

"Touch Your Toes." . . . Some of them can even be used without skis . . .
These were originally developed for use on the famous Saks-Fifth Avenue
ski slide where so many have learned the art . .

J-Hop Guest Names I
Go To Booth Head
In order to make the list of guests
for the J-Hop extra all-inclusive this
year, students planning to attend are
asked to give the names of their
guests to the chairman of the booth
in which they are included, in order'
that The Daily may obtain as nearly
complete a list as possible from these.
The deadline for additions or cor-
rections in the list will be 8:30 p.m.
Thursday, Feb. 13.
Guests will be listed as usual underI
the name of the organization whose
booth they will occupy. Their year
in college is desired if they are stu-
dents here, or else their home town.

Correct House Party Wardrobe
Will Insure Pleasant 1eek-Endi

This year, as every year, many J-
Hop guests will be attending their
first house party. And though such
an occasion should, after the strain
of finals be nothing but absolutely
carefree, there is for some, the ques-
tion of just what to take and what
to leave.
It might be well to say, first of all.
that the general tendency is to take
too much -- more than is needed. The
less luggage, the less effort there will
be in transferring it and keeping
track of it. Don't however, let this
warning note cause you to stint your-
self when it comes to the things you

any booth are requested to send their know you will be able to use. Plan
name and the name of their guest W carefully, and all will be well.
The Daily office between Tuesday, Informal For Saturday
Jan. 11, and the deadline. In addition to your formal and eve-

ideal with the luxury of lounging pa-
jamas. Incidentally, this last named
article is much more conductive to
protracted confabs if it is of a fairly
I heavy and warm material. Velvet,
soft terry cloth and the new heavy
velvets are the best for this purpose,
though satin is very popular and
quite the thing if you're not the type
that gets chilly.
Saturday Afternoon Problem
Then there is the problem of Sat-
urday afternoon. If there is no more
than a sifting of snow on the ground,
your friends will probably be set for
tobogganing or skiing. This means
ski suit, sweater, mittens and boots
- a considerable alignment.
Also it might be well to bring along'
a pair of walking shoes and heavy
gloves in case a pleasant ramble is
scheduled for Saturdays afternoon
or Sunday morning . . . And don't
forget your manicure kit and tooth-
The American vogue of the shiny
face is gaining vogue here. Only lip-
stick and eye make-up is being used
by some smart Londoners. With the
eye brows plucked thin and a dark
lipstick one may achieve a rather
exotic effect or if you favor the naive
expression you may use a light lip-
stick and very little eye make-up.
